I was pumping hard to launch the rocket.
At the ‘Eureka’ , my big sister and I are trying to get the ball down the hole.
Nice music…at ‘Eureka’.
I’m operating the ‘crane’. This is really fun.
Got it! I really enjoy operating the ‘crane’.
At the ‘Pathway To Science’ with my big sister Kafah.
Moving the balls trough this machine is really fun and it teaches us about how simple machine works.
We have to work together to get balls moves throughout the whole machine…
The ‘Wonderspark’ section is also amazing.
Jumping and shouting under the ‘Echo Dome’.
Stepping on the special ‘buttons’ to ‘activate’ the ‘Musical Fountain’.

A Visit To Pusat Sains Negara

Recently, I went to Pusat Sains Negara or National Science Centre for the ‘Dinosaurs Live!’ exhibition.

Entering the ‘Dinosaurs Live!’ exhibition.

There were lots of dinosaurs (fake ones) around such as Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-rex) and lots more!

But I am sad because the dinosaur exhibition was not as exciting as I expected.

The dinosaurs are able to move their bodies, eyes and tongues, but they do not look as alive as in my imagination.

Anyway there are lots of exciting and educational activities at the Pusat Sains Negara.

First we walked under Malaysia’s first overhead aquarium.

With my big sister Kafah at the aquarium.

Next we watched the ‘Science Demonstration’ and after that I had lots of fun at  ‘Eureka’ such as walking through the ‘mirror maze’, jumping on the ‘air bounce bed’ and lots more of other activities.

I(third from left) volunteered on stage during the Science Show.
I’m jumping on the ‘air bounce bed’. It was really fun.

We also took part in the activities at the ‘Wonderspark’, ‘Pathway To Science’, ‘Flight’, ‘Thinking Machine’ and others.

Riding on the propeller aeroplane at the ‘Flight’ section.

There are so much of interesting things that we could do over there.

I was looking through the periscope.
On the ‘Moonwalker’.

So, even though the ‘Dinosaurs Live!’ exhibition was not really fun for me but  I had so much fun and learning a lot of new things about science at the Pusat Sains Negara 🙂

I hope to go there again because there are lots of activities that I do not have the chance to try.

Photos: Spectacular Northern Light Over Minnesota

An X1.4 class flare erupted from the center of the sun, peaking on July 12, 2012 at 12:52 PM EDT. It erupted from Active Region 1520 which rotated into view on July 6. A blast of charged solar particles from a solar storm was due to arrive July 14 and shake Earth’s magnetic field.

A solar storm sparked the spectacular northern lights display in the skies over the  Upper Midwest over the weekend.

Northern light is also known as Aurora Borealis.

Southwest Japan especially in Kyushu Island, is now facing a big flood after three days of heavy rain.

So far, at least 20 people were reported killed and 9 people were missing.

About 400,000 people were ordered or advised to evacuate their homes.

Rivers broke their banks and flooded the areas and there were hundreds of landslides caused by the heavy rain.

Houses were damage and bridges were destroyed.

This is a disaster!

Huge Sinkholes Around The World – Photos

sinkhole is a natural depression or hole in the Earth’s surface caused by:

  1. karst processes or the chemical dissolution of carbonated rocks or salt beds.

  2. suffosion processes for example in sandstone.

Carbonated rocks such as limestone can be dissolved by water, especially acidic water.

When the carbonated rocks dissolved, there will be empty space or hole under the ground.

When there is nothing more to support the surface land, the gravity caused the surface land to suddenly collapse into the underground hole.

And that causes a sinkhole.

Suffosion processes can also cause sinkholes.

This picture will explain the suffosion processes.

Formation of a suffosion sinkhole

Sinkholes are very dangerous especially when it happens in the city under big buildings or busy highways.

In 2010, a giant sinkhole in Guatemala City caused by heavy rain from Tropical Storm Agatha swallowed at least one three-story building!

This is a disaster.

Here are photos of some sinkholes:

Photos: Srebrenica, Bosnia – Then And Now

I came across some interesting photos of Srebrenica in Bosnia showing the town after the Bosnian War and the town in 2012.

The old photos were taken just a few years after the war showing buildings destroyed during the war while the new photos were taken 17 years after the war.

The Bosnian War took place between April 1992 and December 1995 in Bosnia and Herzegovnia after the breakup of Yugoslavia.

In July 1995, the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) killed more than 8,000 Bosniaks or Bosnian Muslims mostly men and boys in Sresrenica.

The mass killing was known as the Srebrenica massacre or the Srebrenica genocide.

During the war, Bosnian Serb forces commanded by General Ratko Mladic killed up to 8000 Muslim men and boys in the Srebrenica area. Bosnian Serb army commander Mladic, who personally witnessed the capture of Srebrenica, was arrested in Serbia in May 2011 after 16 years on the run. He is accused of genocide for orchestrating the massacre and for his role in the siege of Bosnia’s capital Sarajevo. REUTERS/Staff

It’s Rescue Time!

Once upon a time there was a hand named Handy. One day Handy went for a walk through the woods. While he was walking Handy sang the song “Handy and Sis Cha Ma”.

As he crossed a bridge towards the Green Grass field, he saw an orange fox jumping over a brown dog. Suddenly the orange fox fell on top of Handy and ran quickly across the bridge toward the woods.

The orange fox jumped over the brown fox and was about to fall onto Handy who was crossing the bridge from the woods.

Handy fell into the river but luckily he could swim. He swam and climbed up back onto the bridge. Handy was really surprised by the incident that he accidentally sang, “Mr. Handy and Sis Ma” instead of “Handy and Sis Cha Ma”.

When he reached home, he told the story to his brothers, Left and Right and his sister Sis. At that moment, Right was in his black car. When he heard the story, Right started to laugh out loudly. He could not stop laughing because he thought that it was very funny. As he was laughing, he accidentally push the Autodrive Button to Amcorp Mall.

Right accidentally push the Autodrive Button.

He was too panicked that he couldn’t even stop the Autodrive. Left saw what happened and he knew that he had to do something to help his brother. “This looks like a job for MBH”, said Left.

The MBH logo.

So the MBH went into their helicopter and flew toward Amcorp Mall to save Right . As they flew on top of Right’s car, Left tried to jump down onto Right’s car.

At that moment suddenly came two thousands bicycles racing beside Right’s car. Left cannot get inside the car because of the bicycles so Handy put out his wings and flew into the car. He stopped the Autodrive and saved Right.

As they were saving Right, Sis was pulled out from the car by the racers and they took her away with them. It happened too fast that the MBH could not do anything to stop the racers.

So together with Right, the MBH flew to save Sis.

To be continued.

An Amok At The Malaysian Prime Minister’s Department

On Monday afternoon, a man and a woman ran amok at the Complex B of the Prime Minister’s Department.

CCTV images of the couple entering the complex yesterday before smashing the windows of cars using their samurai swords, they became aggressive when the police told them to surrender.

The man who declared himself as Imam Mahadi was identified as Khalil Afandi Hamid, 47.

His partner is Muhdalina Ahmad, 28 years.

They whipped out samurai swords and smashed the windows of cars parked in the open air car park of the complex.

Police said that said they were very aggressive and even attacked members of the squad who told them to surrender themselves.

Finally one of the officers had to fire three shots to stop them.

The man was hit in his left arm and groin, while the woman was hit in the thigh.

The couple who ran amok after they were shot by the police.

They were rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital.

The man died while the  injured woman is being detained for further investigation.

Drama at PM’s Department: CCTV and Facebook images showing Khalil and the woman (below) after they were shot when they went on a rampage with samurai swords.

Police is still investigating the cause of the amok.

I think it is bad to run amok because it is very violent and innocent people can get hurt.
